Business Spotlight: Q&A with Tomina Ward, Founder & CEO of Black Therapy Love

podcast October 20, 2020

share close

Finding a mental health professional that you can trust and relate to can be difficult – especially in the black community. There’s often this unspoken feeling that we always have to remain strong, and this can often hinder us from taking care of ourselves. In fact, it can be hard to even admit that you need to seek professional help. 

My guest today is here to change all of that. 

In this episode, I had the honor of talking to Tomina Ward, the founder and CEO of Black Therapy Love. After struggling to find a black therapist, Tomina set out to create an app that would connect the black community to black therapists. 

Tune in to hear all about how and why it’s so important to seek professional help, the biggest challenge Tomina faced in her career, and the best advice she’s ever received to date. I think it’ll be the best advice you ever hear too. 

Guest Profile:
